Careers AND GUIDANCE DEPARTMENT
Careers Education and Guidance (CEG) is seen as an essential part of every students’ curriculum here at Lostock High School. All students have an entitlement to an appropriate programme of provision. To ensure that we are offering our students the best possible CEIAG we have achieved the Gold Award of the Inspiring IAG Award.

Careers AND GUIDANCE
In the current economic climate it is important that your child is given the best possible chance to find information on all the education and training post-16. At Lostock High School the first port of call for our students is Mrs Childs who works with all the local colleges and training providers to ensure your child is informed about all available choices when they leave us.
Mrs Childs works closely with our Careers Adviser, Helena Hamlet to give our students Independent Careers Guidance from Year 7 to 11 through one to one interviews, group work and drop-in sessions. Helena is in school on Thursdays and works in the library classroom. This gives the students the opportunity to have a one-to-one careers interview with a Level 6 qualified and completely independent Careers Adviser.
Throughout each academic year we run a number of events and information evenings that serve to assist our students with the choices they need to make. We have Parents Evenings where post-16 colleges and work-based training providers are in attendance. As well as Options Evening, where parents/carers and students have the chance to talk to subject teachers, Mrs Childs and Helena to discuss the option choices available to them.

There are many careers related booklets and prospectuses in the library classroom. Students are welcome to visit these resources or drop in to talk to Helena every Thursday lunchtime. Mrs Childs is available in the school library every lunchtime and after school every day til 4pm.
In the Year 11 Form Classrooms there is information about College Open events, apprenticeship vacancies as well as general careers information.
